Internet trolls have attacked Katie Price‘s 12-year-old disabled son Harvey.
After the former glamour model, 36, uploaded a picture of her son – who suffers from a rare genetic condition called Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) – with a fun new hairstyle, captioned: ‘how cool does Harvey’s hair look here?’ – some of Katie’s 512,000 followers then launched a series of hateful comments mocking the youngster and his disabilities.
Although we’ll refrain from reposting the abusive remarks, many of Katie’s loyal fans fought back against the trolls as the picture gained hundreds of comments within the hour.
‘Don’t often comment on posts but some of these comments are disrespectful,’ one follower added to the post. ‘The need to criticize something you don’t understand or cant handle and shed negative light on is pure ignorance and lack of reality… he has parents and family that love him… the true disability is within the people that aren’t able to show unconditional love… they should take that up with their parents… ignorant ****’s!’
Another fan hit back at the trolls, writing: ‘Shut up you mug and go put hate on someone else’s page – not an innocent boy. This can be counted as cyber bullying.’
Amongst the hate, Katie’s Celebrity Big Brother housemate Perez Hilton commented how he ‘loves’ the young lads funky new hair hairstyle to try end the negativity on the post.
Sadly this isn’t the first time trolls have targeted the family either.
Katie’s husband Kieran Hayler hit out at a fake Twitter profile posing as Harvey in 2013, writing: ‘Please take my son’s name off of here. Have some respect.’
